The Deck Store has been helping home owners, business owners, and professional contractors better understand deck and patio construction for decades. We hope to expand the reach of that knowledge through our blog.

Composite decks are great. They last longer than wood decks, are water resistant, and look fantastic but they do need a little TLC every now and then. Even if composite decks require much less maintenance than real wood decks, they require some cleaning and care to keep the material in tip-top shape. Below are some tips on how to care for composite decks.
Now that you can enjoy your new deck you may start to wonder what would happen if it got damaged, it did cost you a good amount of money anyways. A common question we get a lot is if your deck is covered under homeowners insurance. The answer varies from policy to policy but a good insurance policy typically has similarities. Let’s see if you’d be covered in the worst-case scenario situation.
Before I started the project of cleaning my deck this weekend, a question popped into my head. After doing some landscaping in my backyard I was concerned the deck cleaning product could kill my grass and freshly planted flowers. I did a quick Google search but it was hard to find an answer so I decided to write this blog post so others with the same question can get a clear answer. I also wanted to add some amazing and easy-to-make all-natural cleaning products that I ran across during my research.
The Deck Store is based in Minnesota and we experience harsh winters 4 months out of the year and tons of our customers wait until summer to start building their new decks. Typically this is too late to start as by the time you have drawn up your plans, made your material lists, received all your materials, and then built your deck, it is almost fall. Now, many DIY builders think that it is simply not possible to build a deck during the winter months but contrary to popular belief there are several reasons why it is best to build during the cold. The best part about building in the winter? You can enjoy your deck in the spring and summer!
